Welcome to New Forest Wildlife Photography
Our mission is to capture the beauty of the New Forest and its wildlife through photography. It’s a story that seems timeless but changes with the seasons and especially as the relationship evolves between the animals and people of one of the UK’s newest national parks. We hope you’ll be inspired by our images and stories to get to know the natural beauty of the area better for yourself, check out our New Forest photo workshops if you’d like to arrange your own bespoke photography tuition day.
The New Forest is one of the UK’s most spectacular and diverse natural landscapes, containing areas of ancient woodland, open heathland and coastal marshland. It’s amazing that such diversity can exist in an area of just 220 square miles tucked away in south-west Hampshire.
As well our iconic population of easily viewable ponies the forest also contains many more secretive species. Find out more about some of them in our deer, bird, reptile and dragonfly photo galleries.View our image galleries

Even down to having favourite individual trees! This wonderful forest giant of an oak tree stands in Hincheslea Wood, south of Brockenhurst and on […]
I know a lot of people have mixed feelings about the Common Starling. Their wintertime murmurations are one of nature’s most amazing spectacles, but to a lot of people they are a pest that cause huge damage to crops. But let’s set those issues aside with this portrait and just marvel at this bird itself. […]
This scene is probably familiar to many walkers and cyclists in the New Forest. This path runs east -west from Whitley Wood across to the Rhinefield Ornamental Drive. At this point the path emerges onto Poundhill Heath, in my humble opinion one of the most beautiful open spaces in the whole forest. Late afternoon light and […]
